Ford demos mixed reality car design at Microsoft Ignite
Changing the design of the mirrors doesn't just affect the look and feel of the car, it impacts safety.
The team at Ford can now see the real-time impact on visibility when adjusting the dimensions of that side view mirror.
Historically, they need to create a full scale replica of the car, and have someone sit in the driver's seat to get that line of sight on the side view angle.
But now, they're able to consider design changes, as well as regulatory requirements, while simultaneously seeing what the driver would see.
Essentially being two places at the same time.
The team at Ford is often working against tight deadlines with teams all across the globe.
In the future, with Microsoft technology, they'll be able to join a call and enter the same shared experience.
Allowing them to see their creations and to rapidly review designs quicker than ever before.
Terry's gonna bring Noah into a discussion.
You'll see Noah on one screen and a view into what Noah is seeing on another screen as he's working remotely.
Noah is wearing one of our new Windows Mixed Reality headsets, which will be available starting October 17th.
Now Noah has a fully immersive view.
So as Terry makes changes to the mirror, Noah sees those exact same changes live, In virtual reality.
Our vision for the future was physical and digital worlds across devices.
Empowering people to collaborate in the same shared experience from anywhere around the world.
